Average Joe vs High Fashion Fall/Winter 2009 Collections Part 2

I know this video is approximately 10 minutes long so it can be a pain to watch (or should I say listen) but trust me when I say you’ll burst into laughter towards the 2nd half and until the very end of this video. Twenty-year old Brandon from Brandon, Florida is highly opinionated and boy he has some interesting comments about Lanvin, Louis Vuitton and Missoni.

Lanvin apparently went overbudget and bought belts from Target’s sales racks. Olga Sherer is a “microchip” model. Louis Vuitton Fall 2009 is a Mickey Mouse look-a-like contest and Missoni is Lord of the Rings meets King Arthur.

“It’s a raincoat over a bra. It looks like this was pitched to the lonely girls who like, she can’t find a boyriend but she still wants to feel like a guy gave her a coat.”
- Brandon/20/Florida

Oh and one last thing: your new word of the day is TARGETY.

More to follow in a few days…

PS. I *LOVE* this project! It’s soo refreshing to talk to non-fashiony people about fashion to be honest.

Average Joe vs High Fashion Fall/Winter 2009 Collections Part 1

Non-fashion people have fashion feelings, too” is back! My obsession with the Average Joe and their commentary about today’s fashions continues. I had an interesting conversation last night with a heterosexual non-fashion guy about Balmain, Balenciaga and Givenchy.


“My knowledge of the fashion industry as far as that goes, is that the uglier it is, the more expensive it usually is.”

Coming up, a conversation with this guy…

Non-Fashion People Have Fashion Feelings, Too

It’s been quite a while since I last did a social experiment involving fashion so here’s another one for sheeeeeez and giggles.

I trolled around teh interwebs earlier today and asked four heterosexual American males of different backgrounds to give me commentary based on fashion-related images I sent them. These are your “average joe”-type of people who have no idea what is Laura Hollins’ stage name or who designs Ungaro or where the hell Carmen San Diego, I mean KASS, is.

The results are effing hilarious. Click the first link to begin. I’m warning you — it’s a long read!

On my next installment, I’m gonna do them Brits! I’ll also turn the tables and ask fashion people to give me commentary based on images submitted by non-fashion people.

Ooooo project!
